The chief proponent for allowing counties to ease water supply requirements for new developments has agreed to back off — somewhat.

Senate Majority Whip Gail Griffin, R-Hereford, had originally demanded that counties that have such mandates reapprove them within two years by a unanimous vote of the board of supervisors. That would have allowed a single supervisor to scuttle the requirements.

Facing opposition — and potentially lacking votes — Griffin agreed to flip the language.
